Christ Community Bible Church

We are a non-denominational evangelical Christian congregation located in East Rockhill Township just outside the town of Perkasie in Upper Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Organized in 1962, the founding congregation of Christ Community Bible Church separated from a United Church of Christ denominational body. Although several of those members had family ties dating back many generations, they chose an evangelical faith over theological liberalism.

A sermon on how grace is the greatest expression of God's great love.  Grace is not permissiveness but blessing given when we actively work against being worthy of it.  God's varied gifts of grace: Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms / chosen in Him before the foundation of the world / predestined in love to be adopted as His children / marked with a seal - the promised Holy Spirit - our deposit guaranteeing our inheritance / dead in sin - the primary reason we need God's grace....

A sermon on Revelation 6:1-17.  The people to whom this was written were suffering persecution and needed to hear encouragement.  The riders on the white, red, black and pale horses refer to conquest, persecution, inequality and temporal judgement.  This chapter concludes with reference to the wrath of the Lamb and eternal judgment. Ezekiel 14:21-23 Daniel 12:5-10 Isaiah 61:1-3

A sermon on the goodness of God.  God's goodness is that which makes Him desirable to us.  God is good all the time.  Everything He does is good.  He is the only one who is truly good.

God is without need.  We cannot meet His needs (for they do not exist).  Any idol that we make will require us to serve it.  Yet, God chooses to serve us and meet our needs.  (He gives us life and breath for starters.)  Let us find rest and peace in God alone.

A sermon about the justice of God.  We rely on it and yearn for it but also misunderstand it.  God has one standard, Himself.  We must never speak of God's love apart from His justice nor speak of His justice apart from His love.  Justice is getting what we deserve (punishment for crimes) as well as what is properly due us (justice for the poor and under privileged).
